Academy Award winner Olympia Dukakis and local actor Marco Barricelli will star in A.C.T.'s production of Vigil, written and directed by Morris Panych. The play will perform March 25-April 18, with an opening on March 31.

In the play, an embittered, self-involved bachelor arrives to care for the dying aunt he hasn't seen since childhood, but his brief visit stretches to interminable lengths. As her health improves against all odds -- and against his hopes -- their relationship evolves in unexpected ways.

The creative team will include Ken MacDonald (set and costumes), Alan Brodie (lighting), and Alessandro Juliani and Meg Roe (sound and original music).
